legislative letter and talking point

The purpose of this assignment is to identify current legislative initiatives that impacts
Advanced Nursing Practice and/or healthcare in general and to participate in a health-related
legislative initiative with student’s legislators at the state or federal level.

The Legislative Letter/Talking Points is an assignment that has two parts – writing a
professional business letter to one of your Legislators and the development of a “talking points”
document to include with your letter. Be sure to review the guidelines for the Talking Points
and Legislative Letter before you begin.

You will begin this assignment by identifying your Congressional districts and identifying
your state and federal Legislators. Next, you will search for a bill in the current legislature, at
the state or federal level, for a health-related legislative initiative. Use the resources listed in
the course unit ‘lessons’ to assist you with this assignment. In addition, you will be required to
search the literature to research the topic for data to include in your Talking Points.

Be sure to note that if you are writing your Senator or Representative in Washington, DC, you
must address a bill for the current legislative session – the 113th Congress. If you choose to
write your legislator that represents you at the federal level, be sure you choose a bill
currently being discussed at the federal level. If you decide to write your legislator that
represents you in your state capital, be sure you choose a bill currently being discussed in
your state legislature. If your state legislature is not in session, you will need to select a
federal bill.

Also, be sure to remember that you cannot ask your federal legislators – Senator in the U.S.
Congress and/or Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives – to vote on a bill that
your state legislators vote for in your state capitol. Your state legislators cannot vote on a bill
that is under consideration in Washington, DC.

Your Senator (federal) cannot vote on a bill that is under consideration in the U.S. House of
Representative and your Representative in the U.S. House of Representative cannot vote on
a bill under consideration in the senate (the same is true for your state chambers).

Be sure to check the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill to see if there is bipartisan support.
Note what bills Democrats and/or Republicans support and which ones they co-sponsor.
Check to see if your Senator/Representative is in line with the other
Senators/Representatives in your state.

Check to see if there is a companion bill. If there is a companion bill, you will identify the
bill by name/number in your letter. A companion bill is defined in the Legislative Glossary
Terms posted in the Lessons.

You can ask your Senator to consider sponsoring a similar bill that is under consideration in
the House of Representatives in the Senate Chamber if there is a bill before the House that
you would like to see in the Senate or vice versa
